Storyline

After her company was taken over, Charlie Mackenzie has the right profile to get her old executive job back, except that her new boss Ed(ward) Walcott insists on being a 'family company', so when he thinks she's wearing a wedding ring (which just got stuck when she tried it on) she dares not tell him the truth. When she has to invite that boss and his wife, she hires actor Buck Maddockx to pretend being her husband Frank, the father of her (actually the friend who lend her a fine house) daughter Nicole, without any rehearsal. They get by with some daring lies, but then the Walcotts decide to rent the house next door while their Malibu residence is being remodeled... Written by KGF Vissers

Family Plan-When Planning Went Comically Out of Control ***1/2
18 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An absolute pleasure where Tori Spelling places a career woman whose company is gobbled up by a larger one. Her new boss believes in family values, and the single Tori hires a guy to pose as her husband so that she can keep her job. Her friend's daughter, played by a very young and precocious Abigail Breslin, acts as her daughter.

What makes this film so good are the complications that soon develop over this lie. We're dealing with houses, the boss wanting to meet the family, her friend, whose house is used, is separated and her suspicious husband thinks she is fooling around with the guy that Spelling has hired to portray her husband.

Obviously, we all know where this is going but it's quite funny and by the end, this is one lie that has worked out quite well.

The old subjects of career woman and no family, and a lie spinning out of a control are well worked on here.
